US Navy Rear Admiral. He was an 1890 graduate of the US Naval Academy; his first assignment was aboard the flagship "Pensacola." While serving on the USS Annapolis from July 1897 through May 1899, he participated in the Battle of Nipe Bay, the capture of Puerto Rico and other expeditions on the south coast of Cuba. He was appointed Captain on Aug 29, 1916 and, as commander of the USS Virginia, was responsible for transport of troops to and from France during the first world war. He received the Navy Cross for "exceptionally meritorious service in a duty of great responsibility as Commanding Officer of the USS Virginia in the Atlantic Fleet." In 1921, he commanded the Pacific Fleet aboard the newly commissioned USS California. After his promotion to Rear Admiral in 1922, he was the director of naval communications, the commandant of the Navy Yard in Norfolk Virginia and, in 1928, the Navy Yard in Bremerton, Washington.
